From Tuesday onward a high will it out to the East allowing the first significant, multi day heat even to build up in Victoria this will be followed by a Cool Change sometime on Friday, with little certainty of the time of this change. Some models have it moving into the SW in the morning and reaching Melbourne by late afternoon and others pushing it through much latter not reaching Melbourne until after midnight. This change is looking stormy at this time. Models also indicate this change may not even reach areas North of the divide allowing the heat to continue into the weekend and possible rebuild next next week.



Current Forecasts:

Wednesday: Mid 30's in the North and mid to high 20s in the South
Thursday: Very hot in the West Near 40 in the Mallee and Wimmera, Mid to 30's in Central and Eastern Areas
Friday: Stormy change moving though leading to little confidence in temps but looking cooler in the SW, very hot 42 in Mildura, Mid-High 30's in Central and Eastern areas with 36°C for Melbourne.
Weekend onward: little relief in terms of temperatures across the north, still mid 30's

Summers about to arrive with a bang, likely looking at our first widespread Total Fire Bans on Friday. Will also dry out most of the recent rain and meaning we enter the danger period from this event until any major rain arrives.

Yep, looks like it will be getting pretty hot in Melbourne this week.
I have to watch out for any bushfire activity in the area of my new workplace (Mt Dandenong), as the area around my work has not seen any significant fire activity for many years. And other TV sites around the place in the bush that I look after.
At least on Code Red days I am not required to attend the office !

Thanks for the thread logansi👍

Yep agree with what’s said above.
Things start to get serious from this point
Onwards, if we don’t receive a decent drop
After this looming few warm days then that’s
When we could see things dry out considerably
Quickly (around west south gippy).

Barring last month, we were way down on rainfall
For the 3 months of spring, so I would except
That it won’t take many warm/hot days to cure
The grass.

Yeah agreed, despite the recent rain it has mostly been in the 10-40mm range which only has limited impact on the drying cycle especially after such a significant deficit leading into summer.

Again for forested areas the impact is limited the bush will still be very dry from the rainfall deficiencies and while the finer fulls will be nice a wet after the recent rains it only take a few 30°+ windy days to dry them out.

Still a long way out but feeling like a change is about to occur, the cut of lows which has dominated the last month are gone and models are showing a rapid re-warming following the event of this thread, unlike previous events where hot days have been followed by almost a week of cooler weather.

Lot of heat inland, sections of WA looking at 47 this coming weekend.

Also while far from reliable look at this heat signatures from CFS for the next month

Yeah those charts don’t look to good heat wise
For December!
Just had a quick look at the bom heatwave charts
And they put us in a “severe “ heatwave category
For the period of Thursday/Friday and Saturday

Thanks Logansi.

Yep, looks like the fire season for NW Vic will be underway by the time this thread expires.

Latest models for the weekends change for Vic starting to show a bit of promise, only for localised areas, ...and probably will involve lightning.

Bigger picture seems to show the climate heading towards easterly dip scenarios for E Aus towards the end of this thread. IMO that will repeatedly be the story through to mid Jan, due to the "door becoming open" for moisture to advect into the seasonal Aus heat low ...from both the Coral Sea and the (more typical) NW Aus coast. Fire-wise, lets hope my uneducated gut feel is close to the mark.

Thinking along those lines also Petros, although not with the same fluency of expression ( smile ).

December could turn out OK re fuel rates, ie hopefully not making it worse and even improving moisture levels in forest floor fuel.

Be nice if this bit of a "wet turn" continues and it will be interesting to see what eventuates.

January, seen 176mm January's locally not that long ago, it was like living in the tropics.

Trying to stay optimistic grin

GFS latest run keeps the interest up on this next change:




The passing LWT sweeping through the far southern bight waters over the weekend looks to sag back away south/decay by Monday, leaves Vic/SE Aus seemingly in a potential summer easterly dip scenario into next week? - will next week deliver the "spring" storms we have missed this spring over Nth Vic regions?

really hard one to pick, models are all over the place about what happens after Saturday in fact there is still little confidence in the timing of Fridays change which is still all over the place largely because the change will effectively stall and decay at some point. Models are also struggling with the moisture levels and storm potential with this front.

Latest models including the GFS 06z run which WZ doesn't see are keeping the easterly drip further North leading to little significant rain, EC has been very confident of this all week. All comes down to the strength and speed of the next high. Either way next week will be warm to hot just a matter of if it will be hot and humid with storms or dry.

Overall lets just say its not a great time to be a weather forecaster if your looking trying to compare the major models!

Lot of temp upgrades for Friday with change pushed back, now looking 32°C here in Portland, 38°C for Melbourne, 40°C Horsham, 39°C Bendigo, 41°C Mildura. Wind also predicted higher already looking at Severe FDI in Mallee, Wimmera and Northern Country, may extend to all western and central districts with only a small further increase.

34°C in Mildura today will be there lowest in the next week.

25c today with the hair dryer easterly in
Full mode up here!
Yeah next couple of days looking very warm
And potentially windy bad fire day Friday!!
Lucky the grasslands around here are still pretty
Green, but the bush is very dry.
Regarding rainfall out of this period, looks
Like there’s not to much in it at this stage?
Maybe the north east and east Gippsland might
Get a heavy storm

Stay very hot in North until good cool SW change next weekend Saturday 15th with some rain likely.

My max/min thermo indicated a max of 41C here (in the shade) sometime this afternoon. .....Grain of salt as my weather station is currently refusing to offer the temperature trend chart for some reason I'm too dumb to fix.

Nice 21 here in Portland after the very weak cool change, bit of wind right on it but nothing now, wish it was stronger to help cool the house down.

37° Yesterday and 35°C Today

Surprisingly its quite rare that we get 2 days above 35°C in a row in December.

Mostly cloudy 36C here today, hot point was late morning under a period of sunshine with high humidity. Felt like huge storms could brew.

....but breeze commenced from the S lunchtime, persisted long enough to "extinguish" things out this way this arvo.

Calm overcast 26C with light rain just arriving now.

A steamy ish day for the central ranges with a few spots, high of 27.5c and light winds. Wind smashing through from SSE since late arvo with fog, strong winds and 13.9c currently.

Was in Trentham this arvo and could see the storm near Ballan, was certainly going ok for awhile.

Interesting atmosphere atm, notwithstanding localised fog and wind event. Lots of boundaries at various heights and models still seem to think it might fire up around here after midnight. Was doubting it but starting to see some movement on radar and satellite. Fingers crossed I don't have to water tomorrow.

Well I'm back in NSW, as a heat lover I did enjoy your heat down there in the Yarra Valley, not to mention I also enjoyed the wines too!!

Hopefully you guys do get some good rain in the next system, most of that bush looked tinder dry!!

For those losing hope can see huge congestus to my SSW exploding above the fog. Storms W and NW and on vis satellite stretching way back so plenty of chances to come. 18/16 here at 579m now some brief clearance has occurred, its on I think.

2.2mm from pretty good sound and light show. I suspect not too far NW and N of here was a bit more in the gauge.

Fog back so cant see what's coming will need to rely on radar I guess.

Calm and gloomy all day here, had a weak high level storm ripple over this arvo, provided 2mm to give us 8mm since early morning. Farmers in this area would be happy (provided the rain looming next week eventuates).
